I love it here at GCU! While it isn't such a big party school there are tons of clubs you can join to make your time here interesting. Professors really care about your development. Since we have small class sizes they can tell if you're having a bad day or if something is a little off with you. If you need to dorm and get offered a spot in the honors program take it! Honors dorms are some of the newest on campus-they're huge and you share a bathroom with only one other person. We bring comedians&hypnotists to campus and have fun events like dip n dots, pool parties, build a bear, and roller skating. The food isn't that bad, at least there is a lot of variety and ice cream every day in Raymond. I changed my major and that was a really easy process. Since it's a small school, if you join clubs it's very easy to make friends, since club meetings are not full of a large number of people. Also, if you come here, we're big on bake sales so carry lots of $1s with you on your way to class!

Georgian Court University is a small college, but also a very accepting one. I have never felt more at home then when attending GCU. The campus is small, but absolutely gorgeous. The smaller classrooms makes for more attentive professors. The student culture and campus community culture is very accepting and accommodating. Campus programs and activities means everyone can participate in whatever they want. It may not be a school with a great name, but Georgian Court is an amazing University.
The campus itself is moderate. It is has a few amount of buildings for education purposes and only 4 dormitories. The teachers, for the most part, are helpful and caring who are truly there to for the students. However, living on campus has been an unwelcoming experience. The food is unpleasant, along with rotting dorms that’s are over 50 years old with little to no maintenance. My overall experience at the school has been subpar, I can compare it to a high school rather than a college.
